Off I Go Again!

Thank you for your prayers, dear friends - please keep them coming.

I am 'on the road' again tomorrow, for a bit of a round trip.

Firstly, I'm off to Llangasty for the annual conference of the Order of Jacob's Well, an ecumenical healing order that's doing wonderful, amazing work. There is an eleventh hour possibility that the keynote speaker, Roy Godwin, may have to withdraw due to family ill-health and I was asked a couple of days ago if I would help to stand in for him. There's been no time in my diary to prepare for this, so I'd really value your prayers. Please pray too for full and complete healing for Roy's father-in-law who has suffered a stroke. And pray for lots of healing throughout the conference as we share and learn and minister together.

After the conference I'm hoping to have some quiet writing time whilst staying with some dear Christian friends in Wales. I'm pretty tired, so please pray for rest, renewal and inspiration. Please pray for Ken & Mari too, who've kindly offered to accommodate this far-from-home author! Pray that God will bless them as they are blessing me.

Then I'm moving on to Hereford to deliver a 'Deeper Into God' day for a group of ministers in that area. Please pray for real healing and refreshment for this group of people, some of whom work under great stress.

I'm starting to feel as if I'm always on the move at the moment and some 'down time' would be great, but it's a real privilege to do this work and to see people blessed. The weekend at Twydall was very successful, so thank you for your prayers. Pentecost joy was much in evidence on the Sunday and in the reflective silence of the Saturday hearts were touched in deep ways.

May you all be blessed by this taste of summer we're experiencing at the moment. Enjoy it!
